A South End convenience store has a window to replace after it was shattered by what its owner says appears to be a pellet from a B.B. gun.
Jose Blanco, owner of the Spanish-American Don Quijote Market on Washington Street, said Monday the window was broken sometime between 12 a.m. and 8 a.m. Sunday morning.
The store was closed during that time and no one was inside, according Blanco.
Blanco said the store’s windows were undamaged when drove by around midnight on his way home, but an employee opening the store that morning reported the shattered window.
Blanco said he did not report the damage to police because the small hole near the top of the window looked to be caused by a B.B. gun. He is now working with his insurance company to repair the window.
Boston Police have no reports of shots fired near the market.
